State Shares Program
One-third of the Fund’s net earnings are paid to member states each year in proportion to their share of the corporation’s endowment. These funds are used to support local projects that match opportunities identified by each state. Since its inception, the Fund has provided $55 million to its member states to be used for their unique priorities.
Specific information on funding priorities, application procedures, and funding levels can be obtained from the coordinator of each state’s program.
